The purpose of the study was to evaluate the efficacy and feasibility of using website in biology education. We have explored the World Wide Web as a possible tool for education about health and nutrition. The websites were teaching tools for primary school students. Control groups used the traditional educational materials as books or worksheets, and the experimental groups used prepared web-site as an educational tool. This experimental study confirmed the efficacy of computer-based nutrition education in nutrition knowledge. Nutrition knowledge score of the experimental group was statistically non-significant as compared to control group both in posttest and retention test, which means that using website in nutrition education has similar effect on nutrition knowledge as traditional teaching. Thus, traditional teaching is still valuable compared to ICT approach in nutrition education. (Contains 1 table and 3 figures.)
